Cole Slaw Chef’s Salad

I love cole slaw and enjoy it as a side with all sorts of foods. I was thinking of ways to make it more of a main dish today and came up with a twist on a chef’s salad. I took shredded cabbage and added meat, fruits and dressing than topped it with some cashews. Quick to make and a great choice when it is too hot to cook or you don’t have a lot of time. You can use your own imagination to add whatever other fruits or proteins you might want to use.
